I promise not to rub salt into raw wounds.  I know many of us out there are shocked and grieving at the death of Robin Williams.  There was a point, I could not look at or hear anything about this without crying.  So this morning I just happen to stumble on Marianne Williamson’s post on Facebook.  I see the title, and I think – no way, I am not reading this.  Then I remember, this is Marianne Williamson!  She’s not going to take us through some heart breaking journey of his life, no she will elevate us all from our sorrow.

I need read nothing more on the subject, she says it all:

“ON THE PASSING OF ROBIN WILLIAMS…

One theory of death is that, upon our passing, we experience our lives again backwards. Whatever I gave or did not give to others, I will experience what they experienced — times ten. That would mean that for every laugh — either a small chuckle or outright guffaw –every smile that Robin Williams caused to occur in others, he is now experiencing tenfold. That would amount to bliss unending. May it be so.

Juxtaposed with both irony and tragedy, of course, is the unspeakable suffering that would have led to his death, and the grief today of those who knew him best and loved him most. Let’s hold both truths in our hearts — a deep appreciation that a comic genius walked among us and shared his gifts with us, thanks for the opportunity we had and still have to enjoy his talent, and prayers of peace for his soul and comfort for his family.

Dear God,
May Robin Williams be blessed.
May he find in heaven the peace he could not find on earth.
May he know now the joy that he gave to all of us.
Give comfort to his family,
and rest unto his soul.
Amen”

If you haven’t been able to check in on this inaugural free global online event at Hay House, there’s still time, it lasts through June 10th.  The day’s speakers will be available for just under 24 hours.  This is a phenomenal opportunity, but don’t fret if you can’t listen in, at least for today, the Bethie fairy has transcribed some more highlights for you.

Marianne Williamson speaks on what A Course in Miracles has taught her:

“…the door to peace lay in my forgiveness and love and reaching out in compassion to the person in front of me.  This is not about belief, but experience and I would only experience the peace of God to the extent to which I sought to be an element of peace in the lives of others.  When you know every thought of attack towards anyone is a sword that is dropping on your own head, and when you know that your willingness to see the innocence in another person, then therein lies your capacity to experience your own innocence.”

Jack Canfield was also a speaker, and for all of you writers, I heard him recount that his “Chicken Soup for the Soul” was rejected 143 times!  The whole series has been read now by more than a half a billion people!

“Dear God, help me see the truth about myself, no matter how beautiful it is.”   (Love!)

“De-pression means there is something pressing in on you.  The best cure I know for de-pression is EX-pression.  You cannot be depressing and expressing at the same time.  If you can take that energy that is pressing in on you and gracefully re-direct it to bring it forth and press it out, then you are taking the same power that was working against you and you are making it your friend; it becomes your ally.”

Gay Hendricks

“Anytime we say things to ourselves or to others, that we don’t have time for that, we are making ourselves a victim of time   The big discovery I made is that I am the source of time and I can make up as much as I want to do the things i want to do.  The reason that works that way is because I quit thinking of myself as the victim of time.  I realized suddenly if I wasn’t speaking as the victim of time, wait a minute! … the other possibility was that maybe I was connected to the source of time!  I realized if I just completely let go and just owned my connection with the source of time, I could make up as much as I wanted to do whatever I wanted to do with it.”  (Wow, what a brilliant concept and so simple.  No maybes about it, if we are connected to Source, then we are connected to it’s unlimited supply!  Read below for a really nice dovetail on this point.)

James F. Twyman

“For most Law of Attraction techniques the foundation is the statement – I want, as opposed to the statement – I Am.  We know that I Am is the name of God, this is the presence of the Divine.  I Am that.  It’s not something that I want.  It’s not something that I hope to have someday.  I already Am because I Am claiming the authority and the divinity of my Creator which is, of course, All things.  When you look at the statement I want, obviously there is something behind that, the sponsoring thought, which is – I don’t have it already.  It’s not something I have that’s in my energy field.  But the statement – I Am, what it does is, it creates an energy field, it creates a magnetic force that is a thousand times more powerful.”

James Twyman, as he continues to comment on the idea of oneness, I Am-ness:

“How do we allow a concept to become a real force in our lives?  That’s such a good question and there’s no real easy answer because it’s not something that we can do, but it is something that we can undo.  Maybe that’s the best way to say it.  Undo this delusion that we have created, that we are separate, vulnerable, alone, that we are here to fight and survive that our physical existence is who we really are, to undo that belief.  …I realize that every moment is an opportunity, right in front of me, to see the truth, to experience oneness or to see the Beloved as I call it.”
